The FGN J Standard Mythic JMY7-Ash-M 7 String is here presented in an Transparent White finish with Maple fretboard. Made in Japan as part of FGN’s J Standard series, this guitar features a five-piece maple / walnut neck – topped with a reverse headstock – and push-pull coil tap built into the tone pot. Unique features include the FGN Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.) and handmade fret edges. Seymour Duncan Sentient-7 and Nazgul-7 pickups provide heavy, articulate tone. If you’re accustomed to playing high end Japanese-made instruments, the likelihood is that you’ve already played an FGN (Fujigen); the company originally built its reputation as an OEM manufacturer for the world’s most respected brands. Now, with their own range of guitars, they exercise creative independence over instrument design, while maintaining their time-won attention to detail.
This modified Strat-style 7-String Mythic model features an Ash body with carved top and transparent finish. Designed for metal players, its 5-piece maple and walnut neck is lightning fast, while FGN’s painstakingly hand-finished frets allow super-smooth fingering. Unique to FGN guitars is the Circle Fretting System (C.F.S.). Slightly curved frets are mounted so as to ensure that each string and fret intersects at right angles, minimising the contact surface. The result is accurate pitch, cleaner, longer sustain and true harmonics.
Unique features and outstanding build quality are met by top-quality components. The J Standard Mythic JMY7-Ash-M is fitted with Gotoh SG381-07 MG-T locking tuners, resulting in silky tuning action, superb tuning stability, and easy string changes. Twin Seymour Duncan pickups – a Sentient-7 in the neck and Nazgûl-7 in the bridge – are masterpieces of pickup design, facilitating the heaviest of tone, while remaining articulate and highly responsive.
The 7 String FGN J Standard Mythic JMY7-Ash-M is a truly stunning metal machine, available at an amazing price for its outstanding Japanese construction.
